The place is beautiful and well maintained. However, on the day of checking out there was no running water early morning. That caused a bit of inconvenience. Otherwise, good option for a stay in Ooty.

This is a very nice hostel! The staff is very sweet and helpful they help creating a very good atmosphere! The atmosphere here is the best we’ve experience after one month in India. They make bonfire in the evening which is very nice! The only bad thing is that the rooms are very cold during the night and there’s no hot water or good water pressure in the shower. We would definitely recommend but make sure you have warm clothes you can sleep in for a comfortable night.
